Patient discussion about neuraxis

Q. Fibromyalgia deeply affect the CNS? Do fibromyalgia deeply affect the CNS (central nervous system)?

A. Fibromyalgia is somewhat related to central nervous system. Fibromyalgia can ultimately disrupt the flow of neurotransmitters between the body and the brain. As a result, fibromyalgia can cause the patient to feel continuous pain, and create chronic muscle spasms. In addition, fibromyalgia patients are often subject to abnormally light a sleeping pattern which prevents the normal production of serotonin and growth hormone normally produced during stage 4 (deep) sleep. This inhibits the body’s ability to heal itself, and may contribute to the overwhelming fatigue and depression experienced by those with FMS.

Q. Is fibromyalgia related to Central Nervous System? Is fibromyalgia related to Central Nervous System? Among men and women who is more prone to the symptoms of fibromyalgia?

A. here is a quote from the National Fibromyalgia Association site:

"Little research has been conducted that measures the prevalence of fibromyalgia, and estimates vary widely as to the proportion of male versus female patients. A 1999 epidemiology study conducted in London found a female to male ratio of roughly three to one. However, a 2001 review of the research literature in Current Rheumatology Reports stated the ratio was nine to one."

Also, some patients undergoing regional or neuraxial anesthesia may perceive thermal comfort despite having substantial hypothermia.

The most common indication for GA was maternal contraindications to neuraxial anesthesia or a failed block (75.
Part 6 specifies the requirements for connectors used in neuraxial applications intended to administer medications to neuraxial sites, wound infiltration, anaesthesia delivery, other regional anaesthesia procedures and to monitor or remove cerebro-spinal fluid for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes.
A There are four basic kinds of anesthesia: Local, given to numb a small area: regional, which numbs a larger area, neuraxial (spinal or epidural) which is injected near the spine and numbs the lower half of the body, and general, which works in your brain and leaves you completely unconscious and unable to sense pain.
There are 20+ m neuraxial anesthesia-related (epidurals and spinals) procedures per year in the US; 20% to 80% of all needle placement attempts fail, depending on operator skill, age, and patient obesity; obese and elderly are growing demographics.
Eventually they will dictate connector size and shape for breathing systems and driving gases, enteral, limb-cuff inflation, neuraxial, and intravascular-hypodermic applications.
Neuraxial anesthesia, including epidural and combined spinal-epidural anesthetics, are the "gold standard" interventions for pain relief during labor because they provide a superb combination of reliable pain relief and safety for the mother and child.
The first section (Part 1) identifies the general requirements for small-bore connectors, and the following six identify specific requirements for connectors falling into one of the following general application areas: Part 2) breathing and driving gases; Part 3) enteral (feeding tube) applications; Part 4) urethra and urinary; Part 5) limb cuff inflation or non-invasive blood pressure; Part 6) neuraxial applications; and Part 7) intravascular or hypodermic applications.
Peripheral and neuraxial nerve blocks can provide superior pain management, improve patient outcome and decrease the risk of complications in elderly patient.
